much diversity they showed. i tune in every election and i watched the whole thing today, and i was impressed to see such a broad representation of latinos, african american leaders, it was really interesting. maybe it is an indicator of the historical nature of having a president of this type of background. the other thing, i thought michelle looked incredible. i heard one of the previous colors was not quite impressed. i am not much of a fan of pop music per se, but the singing that kelly clarkson did at the swearing-in was incredible. she actually gave me chills. it was extremely well organized. i was really impressed with it overall. i wish the present -- president the absolute best. >> we will continue to take your calls for a couple of minutes. on the right, the d.c. convention center. one of two balls happening inside their. the president is about five minutes from coming on stage. we will also see a dance from vice president biden and jill biden. also trying to get a couple of for you -- of tweets for you. we appreciate the tweets. we will try to get to as many as they can.

issue was meeting with a nurse soon after i had been elected to congress, about five years ago. she had been deployed several times. she had never been sexual assaulted but i asked her if it was as prevalent as i had heard. she said she was more afraid of her own soldiers than of the enemy. this culture change has to happen among the enlisted service members as well. as you talk about what you're doing and you're starting at the top, how do you change culture across the 80%? what are you doing at that level? how do you encourage everyone to embrace the efforts that you are currently engaged in? i fear that you don't and you are not successful there, we will come back again and again. you will tell us your good stories but we will continue to hear shocking situations that you have said will not occur again. >> thank you, congresswoman for giving me an opportunity to comment. i did not say this won't comment again. we will do everything we can to prevent it. we can't accept this. it is horrible, we all know that. human behavior, as you know, it is difficult to change. i don't believe

, the children, and how suddenly guns are at least a public topic. we look at the election of an african-american first family, and many minds were changed on some level. on levels of people don't even understand. so real world events are important in being able to change hearts and minds, but you have to be organized to respond to those real-world events. and many times advocacy communities are not. and then gardner reminds us that rewards and resources can change minds. and that's where philanthropy can be a partner. that's where the private sector could be a partner. that's where the public sector could and -- could invest in this work. because when the resources are there, when the incentives are there, attitudes and behavior. but ultimately gardner talks about residents. most of what i've described in gardner's list appeal to the rational, to the cognitive aspect of our being. but the resonance appeals to the motion. because ultimately it is our feelings that dictate our behavior. there's a call for more empathy. i like to say we need more empathetic action. we have found an

an election can sometimes overshadow the business of governing, but the presidential campaign is now behind us, and so it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago and that is to work weus -- with us in solving problems, to put aside what we know we can't agree on and focus on what we can agree on. we should start with spending and debt because if we don't get a handle on that, nothing else matters. if we don't work together to strengthen our entitlement programs, they will go bankrupt. all the cuts will be forced on -- automatic cuts will be forced on seniors rendering worthless the promises they built their retirements around. it is nice to say, as the president did yesterday, these programs free us to take the risks that make our country great. but if we don't act to strengthen and protect them now, in a few years they simply won't be there in their current form if we don't work together to control the debt, the cost of our interest payments alone will eventually crowd out fund
